My surface tablet is dying (in particular, the battery/power supply is no longer any kind of reliable.)
I want to replace it, but I’m not sure what to get.
My minimum requirements are:

- Comfortable to bring into my bed when I want to veg out to youtube videos for an hour or two.
- Can bring with me to e.g. roleplaying sessions for storing notes, or when I want to write something
Immediately “get another surface” is disqualified – Win10 can no longer be made to not spy on you.

I am still so fucking mad that Microsoft decided to ape Google instead of Apple.
